Building a Plan for your Technology
As of the start of 2023, the IRS is requiring all businesses that provide tax preparation services to create a Written Information Security Plan (WISP) or else be subject to hefty fines! And as of June 9th, 2023, the same goes for the updated provisions of FTC Safeguards Rule.
Nerds Support has been helping accounting firms form Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery plans, as well as use technology to accelerate growth & improve efficiencies for almost 20 years.
In highly regulated industries, partnering with a transparent & reliable managed IT provider to plan your security is crucial. So when it comes to providing IT for accounting & wealth management firms, we keep a strict adherence to compliance & cyber security.
Potential Issues with Not Having a WISP
Expensive Fines & Repairs
Violators of the WISP requirement could be subject to a fine of $100,000 by the IRS. It’s also less expensive to make upgrades & repair technology sooner than later.
It’s important to define processes on dealing with cyber security threats like data breaches, ransomware & phishing emails, rogue employees or a natural disaster.
Broken Data Backups
Your data backups are only as secure as the last time they were tested. Developing clear Penetration Testing processes can ensure you have the protections in place.
Any cyber threats you encounter could post potential compliance risks for your company. Our solutions help meet SOX, GDPR, PCI DSS, FINRA and SOC compliance.
